Enhancing Community Awareness on the Linkage between Corruption and Human Rights

Based on The Coalition for Accountability and Integrity (AMAN) continuous search and analysis, the link between corruption and enjoyment of human rights is not yet recognized by different actors of the Palestinian society including official and non-official organizations, mainly those who are working in the field of anti-corruption and human rights.

Thus, AMAN worked throughout this project on sharing the global knowledge on this linkage by compiling a practical assessment for Palestine with focus on the fundamental right to health, and providing community awareness on this linkage and empowering CSOs working on the health right to integrate integrity, transparency, accountability and anti- corruption in their strategies to play an active role in holding officials accountable for corruption and violation of human rights.
